This place is in a quiet spot right across from the beach. There’s a pool here, and Elounda is nearby.
This place has a great spot near the beach. And each of the rooms has a balcony or terrace overlooking the pool. Even though it’s self-catered, the barbecue night brings everyone together.
Just over the road is a sand-and-shingle beach. And it’s about 10 minutes’ walk to Elounda’s main square, where there are lots of bars, tavernas and authentic Greek cafés.

Had a great Apartment here at the Manos, It was 2 bedroomed and had 3 balconies, two at the front with Pool and Sea View and one on the side with great mountain views. We loved this place the people were friendly, the bar was great and the pool area lovely and sheltered from the sometimes windy days. A great trip is the brown train up the mountains the two boys look after you and are very knowledgeable. I would recommend a walk to Plaka which is pleasant along the front for lunch, or get on a boat to Spinalonga much cheaper from here. Favourite restaurants are The Hope for meat, Nikos on the harbour for fish and Fresco for giant Gyro's. Absolutely love this place.More
It was our first visit to the Manos after numerous recommendations from my customers (I work in travel). What an absolute delight the manos was. The accommodation was basic but clean, we had everything we needed. Hercules the bar man is so friendly very hospitable and will tell you anything you need to know about Elounda. The manager Lorraine is always around to speak to and again is very welcoming. The 2 ladies on the bar, who do all the cooking (whose names I cant remember) are really lovely, and the food is always great! breakfast is amazing. Elounda is the prettiest place I have ever been too. The restaurants around the harbour and to the right of the manos are just to die for. Our favourites being the Vacuous and Poulis (which is built on a jetty in the sea). If you want to sample tradiotonal Greece and want a welcoming, friendly and all round great accommodation-try the manos, you will not be disappointed. We are booking up or next year and we cant wait!More
Great location, amazing staff
This was our first visit to Elounda and the Manos apartments. We visited the first week of October and the weather, which we were abit worried about before setting off, was exceptionally warm and sunny. Elounda is a fishing village which has been developed over a number of years into a compact resort with pretty much everything you would want - lots of restaurants and tavernas, nice beach and plenty of shops. A great many Spinalonga day trips leave from the harbour which gives the place quite a buzz in the day. At night it's a shimmering, rather beautiful place and as we went in October was never too crowded, noisy or rowdy. Manos is positioned a very short walk (10 mins leisurely pace) from the centre of the resort. It has a decent (though slightly small) pool and is right opposite a very nice beach which we used everyday. There is a decent supermarket a couple of minutes away and you are spoilt for choice for places to eat. We had room 17 which was great. Spacious, clean and with a great view of Elounda Bay from our sizeable balcony. The staff at Elounda were fantastic. The two ladies who run the Pool Bar in the day are great and do a dizzying array of breakfasts and food - always with a big smile. Hercules runs the bar at night and makes every guest feel like a VIP. I really can't praise him highly enough. Larraine is the manager and is very approachable and helpful. As we travelled in October most of the guests were on the (ahem) older side but that didn't bother us. It was always quiet. I would really recommend the Manos. Perfect location, amazing staff and clean and well appointed. The perfect place for exploring the East of the island. More
Here we go again......
We have been coming here for a number of years now and have never been disappointed. Over the years we have met up with other couples and formed friendships. Larraine and Aspasia (who makes the towels into fabulous animal shapes) could not be more helpful. Maria and Nectaria behind the bar cook a wide range of great breakfasts, lunches and snacks - always served with a smile. Heracles gives a cheerful welcome to the evening guests. Totally relaxing. There is everything you need - let's face it you are not going to go "self-catering" and spend all your time in the kitchen! We'll be back - meanwhile thanks for another great holiday.More

Just as good as last year! Larraine and her team really looked after us, regular cleaning & changing bedding, towels etc. We were made to feel very welcome. The other guests all got on well together and as a result there was never a dull moment, laughs all round. Pleasant stroll into the town where there is a variety of good restaurants, for the more able/energetic there are good restaurants up the hill behind Manos. Lunches & snacks available at the pool bar are very reasonably priced, good variety and tasty. Again the ladies cooking and serving are friendly and helpful. Favourite restaurants were Oloundi, Paradosiako, Vachus & The Hope. Morning coffee at the Allygos on the harbour where Alex serves a delicious Frappe! We'll be back very soon, possibly as soon as the season starts next year.More
